Los Angeles’s Best Takeout & Dine-In Valentine’s Day Dinners

Valentine’s Day may be a little different this year for many of us, but several of our favorite restaurants around town are thankfully still here to make the holiday extra special. Whether you are searching for a safe, socially distanced table for your first time dining out in months or hoping for a picnic basket or a decadent seven course meal to-go, this list should have something for everyone. And why not show a little extra support to our friends in the restaurant industry by adding a bottle of bubbly or two, and by tipping as much as you’re able.

Happy Valentine’s Day! Cheers! 💕
